Purpose of Activity:
To familiarize orthopaedic nurses with the competencies the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses Collaboration developed to define the concepts of quality and safety and how they relate to the Orthopaedic Core Competencies.
For the last decade, quality and safety have been the ardent focus of healthcare improvement. Many agencies provide resources to healthcare providers to assist their endeavors. The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Collaboration developed competencies that define the concepts of quality and safety in relation to nursing practice and education. These concepts are not new to orthopaedic nursing; they are better defined through the QSEN competencies so that nurses can develop practice behaviors that ensure quality and safety for the patients they care for. The QSEN competencies guide the processes that support the Orthopaedic Core Competencies: Across the Lifespan. Together, they enhance the orthopaedic specialty by deepening the focus on patient safety and high-quality care. Preceptors are in a unique position to influence new nurses and those transitioning into orthopaedic nursing to adopt these practices as they develop skills to meet the requirements of the specialty.
After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:
• Summarize the background information explaining the origin of the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses Collaboration (QSEN) and how its competencies correlate with the Orthopaedic Core Competencies and their levels of nursing practice.
• Outline the scope of each of the six QSEN competencies.
• Provide examples of actions of orthopaedic nurses that demonstrate the use of QSEN competencies.
